Proposal for Publication to Amendment 16 TAC §24.36(d), (f), and (g) Regarding Establishing a Price Index Under TWC §13.1872(b) for Class C Water and Sewer Utilities


The purpose of this rulemaking project is to propose amendments to 16 Tex. Admin. Code (TAC) §24.36(g) pursuant to Texas Water Code (TWC) § 13.1872(b) regarding establishing a price index. This project also proposes minor stylistic amendments to §24.36(d) and amendments to §24.36(f) to propose broadening the time for filing a Class C rate application. Lastly, this project proposes to repeal §24.36(g)(2) and (3), which were needed only during the first two years of the implementation of TWC §13.1872(b).
